Advice From a Semi Truck Wreck Attorney About Being Rear-Ended by a Semi Truck
Sometime the area of product liability comes up when vehicle parts fail, like brakes or horns or seat belts. Each semi truck wreck investigation conducted by a law firm should include inspection of the truck. It can be critical to hire experts to inspect the truck to establish if defective brakes or a different defective part caused or contributed to the wreck. If you or a loved one was rear ended by a semi truck with bad brakes, you may have a product liability claim for money damages against a maintenance company, the manufacturer of the brakes, the manufacturer of the semi truck or any or all of the above.
What if I Was a Passenger in a Car Hit by a Truck?
If you are a passenger in a motor vehicle hit by a truck, you may be able to sue a number of parties to get compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, loss of quality of life, lost future earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages. An injured passenger may be able to recover compensation from the motor vehicle driver's insurance company. This may require the passenger to sue the motor vehicle driver, something that can be difficult when the motor vehicle driver is a friend or relative. This may be the only way for the passenger to get money from the driver's insurance company for on-going care. If you are an injured passenger and the driver in the wreck was a friend or relative, please contact a law firm experienced in these kinds of cases. Odds are they have handled numerous truck wreck cases similar to yours. If your child was injured in a truck wreck and you or the child's other parent was the driver, your child may have to sue you or the other parent. Again, they have handled these kinds of truck wreck cases. The best way to ease your cares and concern is to contact an attorney with experience to answer all of your questions.
